yeah, maybe the GIRL robin. thats a big over statement, no way would he be considered a nightwing. bob has lost every battle he's been in, and its not only that he lost, its that he basically could do nothing to stop them. the only good thing about the character bob to me is the stereotypical jokes they make with him.

Bunshichi havent really fought anybody from the Jyugenbun group or wateva the hell the name is.
Well, Souichirou lost just about all his battles as well at the beginning. I only think the thing that's "wrong" with Bob is that, unlike Souichirou, he doesn't come from a family with special bloodline attacks. Bob is only losing because he has never faced opponents like that before. Taking that into consideration, he is the only character with a severe disadvantage because he's only had to use, let's say, Basic Martial Arts, which doesn't require the usage of ki to kick serious ass.

And Bob becoming another Bunshichi... on that, I guess I have to disagree. Even though, I don't know on what basis. <_<
I suppose I have to reread the entire manga because I was not aware of Bob and Bunshichi's parents showing up--I must've been too focused on the text to take notice. Ah well. One of these days, I'll double check.
Well, it was after Bunshichi and Masataka fought Zombie Fu-Chien which was around the early seventies that we see Bunshichi's parents. From the looks of it, he must've inherited some of his strength from his father.
Bob, they only gave little info for his father, so you just put it together from there.
There was something that was on my mind though. it was eight years ago that the R.W.R. Effect started. Wasn't that around the same time that Soichirou and Bob first met?
Bunshichi has no special powers either, and he just kicks ass. Bob has no powers but he just gets his ass kicked. thats exactly why i said hes jus like a side kick, he so far hasnt really risen to the occasion in any fight except kinda when he fights the girl with the swords, i forget her name. its jus kinda like him being the super hero with no powers, and if anyone even tried to say he'd be a batman with no powers, thats a dam lie cause Bunshichi would be more of a batman than bob would ever be ...souichirou did loose a few in the BEGINNGING, but he won most of his battles, and he also came through for the team more than enough compared to Bob.

I compared him to Bunshichi because as it stands right now, neither of them have any significance to the plot. Their existance means nothing. But at least Bunshichi has a history, and established power ranking AND we haven't seen him leave a battle battered and bruised without a ' you should see the other guy.' ending.
Its just not possible to compare Bob to Souichirou like that. As it stand right now it is impossible for Bob to be anything more than a punching bag for their 'real' opponents. But among the naturally talented members of the school, outside of Masataka of course, he should be ranked very high. Whats more, I'm actually more interested to see some classroom interaction, then this outside of class stuff.
I'm still sticking with the Bob has potential argument. Yeah, we may have hoped that the whole Chiaki incident would have empowered Bob but... that's just kinda anime-cheesy, I'm sorry. I'm glad he didn't get some "new found power" because of that--it'd be like Dragon Ball Z when something happens and they go effn' Super Saiyan. Anime is getting cliche...
Anyway, the thing with Bunshichi is that he's being going to Toudou for...too many years (will he ever graduate?). He's naturally a fighter...And I need to reread the manga. Bob is just at a severe disadvantage because of his lack of nifty Ki tricks and the lack of a specific bloodline power.
God... Tenjou Tenge is like a mix of Naruto and Dragon Ball Z. I think that Bob's a "late bloomer" because he started showing potential with his fight with Madoka...though he was thrown out of the picture afterwards, thus sustaining his position at the bottom of the Fighter Scale.
At this point, I'm just going to say that I have hope in the idea that Bob will be a phenomonal fighter--I'm just waiting to see what Oh! Great will do in future chapters. And to emphasize my belief... I don't put my hope in many things. I love that damn Bob so much...minus his Dennis Rodman do.
haha I guess you guys know what your talking about
Let's just settle it, Bob will pwn everyone in the end.
- All guys lose by default, since they are way smaller than him.
- Bob gets all the chicks, since that's what matters the most at the end.
Think about it, why are Souichiro and Mitsuomi fighting? A girl. Once Maya see's Bob's REAL gift, she will leave think of Souichiro and Mitsuomi as nothing. Along with everyone else, since let's all face the truth here, who ends up with the chick is what truly matters.
if your gonna think about it that way Masataka and ass hat are the two most popular guys with the girls in the group though masataka doesnt really realize it the girls love him.
as for Bob i cant wait till they get more into him and actually get him to start fighting more...i think itll start to be really good. I really enjoyed his fight with Madoka.
